Disco Fries – or Poutine: These are dangerously addictive!

Hey KS fans – especially Esti Shachner from Montreal!

You asked and we delivered here on kosherstreet – Poutine !! or for s Americans the Disco Fries

For those of you unfamiliar with this dangerously addictive delicacy - simple put they are French Fries that are smothered first in a brown gravy sauce and then a cheese sauce (traditionally cheese curd – But here in the states there is no such thing that I know of that is kosher) So we made up our own recipe and boy if you are a fan of my nachos and cheese recipe – this one is even better!!!

These fries are in no way dietetic or cholesterol free – and please don’t even attempt to try and make them fat free – it’s just not going to happen - so just indulge and enoy!!!

Happy Cooking!

    These look awesome!!! I find that many frozen fries have a terrible after taste. what company would you recommend?

  2. Sarah says:

    Hey Hudy,

    As far as the aftertaste with frozen fries – I have never actually had that issue – I am embarrassed to say that when I use frozen fries – it’s usually whatever is the cheapest and kosher :) To me they all taste the same. I do know that the ridged skinny fries have a better crispier consistency when baking than any other that I have tried
    Hope I was slightly helpful – if you made this recipe I would love to know how it worked for you – Happy cooking! Sarah

      I agree with Hudy. Most frozen fries are blah. My favorite is Mccain definitely worth a couple extra bucks.

      • SARAH says:

        Thanks Naomi – I will have to pay more attention to my frozen fries – usually I make from scratch – but def have gone to frozen when time is a factor – But my fries are usually smothered in one thing or the other – so maybe that way I dont notice the after taste :)

    • Hudy says:

      I made these last night for a couple of friends. The cheese sauce was a bit salty, but otherwise it was awesome and everyone loved it!! I told myself before i made it though that it would be a one time thing because it is definitely a heavy, high calorie dish.
      Thanks for posting!

        Thanks for letting us know – If you used a sharp cheddar instead of a mild cheddar – could be the reason for the over saltiness? but I am So glad you enjoyed none the less – I agree – this is a once in a very very blue moon treat!! But oh so worth it :)

    Hi. What is cubed chedder cheese? Can i use shredded chedder cheese?

    • Sarah Lasry says:

      Hey Esther,

      Cubed Cheddar is simple – I took a block of cheddar cheese and cut into small cubes. – the reason for that is because I wanted big chunks of semi melted cheese to imitate the cheese curds that I did not have kosher – But go ahead and used shredded cheddar – it will taste just as awesome!
